NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The City Council of New Rochelle received a report tonight from Barry Nechis, the OEM/EMS Coordinator who discovered multiple streets with various spellings as recorded on the FD/PD Map, New Rochelle Assessors Portal, Street Sign, County 911, D.E.S. CAD, and the U.S.P.S. These discrepancies can create a nuisance for delivery services and a serious safety problem for Emergency Response personnel. A survey was thus created and sent to the property owners on the affected streets to get feedback on the preferred name.
Nechis, along with DPW Commissioner Alex Tergis, made recommendation on changing certain street names:
1. Robert Drive Robert Drive North Robert Drive South
Eliminate "North" and "South" from the official City Name.
2. Meadowwood Path vs. Meadowood Path
Maintain the official spelling as Meadowood Path
3. Hayhurst Drive, Road or Street
Maintain the official spelling as Hayhurst Road
4. Renya vs. Reyna Lane
Change the official spelling to match what the majority is using; Reyna Lane.
